much. in considering this measure. we strongly urge your support. supervisor chiu: 80. >> good afternoon. my name is jeffrey nelson, the head of planning for a medical center. i just want to say that we take this very seriously, as well, and we're under no illusion that we would not be creating new benefits, including housing, and i want to provide a little bit of context as to why some people would have come into conclusions that this was overlooked. hospitals do not have the luxury of having zones. there are special uses everywhere in the city. they are conditional uses. they're all at the discretion of the commission, and we always have to shote our ability. the language that is proposed for the special use district has the allowance for hospitals for a conditional use, and no one is trying to get out from under that. why is there not a discussion of a three to one housing requirement? there are multiple housing requirements in the sweep of the projects, including st. luke's. one is the three to one issue. we wanted to basically start a dialogue, and we sat down of to a coup

of the whole board? president chiu: yes. supervisor mirkarimi: making it easy for the general public throughout the city and county of san francisco. things have changed, and so have our city codes, which of fallen behind the times. using the internet, access has been expanded greatly. however, when it comes to official notices, the city continues to focus on a pre- internet model, where notices are in tiny print out the back of the newspapers and are standard. -- in the back of newspapers. the city process of publishing public notices. there is the public's ability it to find these notices on the website. we had advanced to something on to the ballot and passed. this means towards a two-year budget process, and also changes the definition of notice and published, to remove the requirement that notice is published in an additional newspaper. the definitions were to be defined by an ordinance. that never happened. what this does is define published as posting on the city government website, posting on the appropriate department to website in the main branch of the library, which does not disturb

just talking about it who really are not hear much. supervisor chiu: i have a couple of questions -- could you talk about some of the options you did look at over the last four years, and specifically some of the options to make the hire former president's dais less operational in the way the supervisor daly is suggesting? >> what i can tell you is that there were a number of approaches that were vetted to try to put some large blocks on the president's podium so it could not be used, to try to but bars across if so it could not be used. the challenge is that this is a historic landmark, and the historic preservation community is very committed to not marring the historic landmark, so there's nothing that could be down that would not be reversible. we would have to do -- nothing that could be done that would not be reversible. everything that we do would have to be reversible. i can tell you that we looked at a number of different designs, and the potted plant auction was the most popular -- the part of a plant -- the potted plant option was the most popular. that this means putti

of this situation. i want to go back to the point that supervisor chiu made earlier, which it is that there are is the need that the city continues to have in housing. san francisco has allocated the need to produce roughly 20,000 housing units. korea produced about 17, meaning that we did not meet the goal. we have been allocated with a reduction that has a dramatic increase, and given the downturn in the economy, i think there is a serious question as to how this city is going to be able to meet those needs, given the downturn and given the estimated population growth that will happen in san francisco. the neighborhood plan from our perspective, it is a very critical component for how a city is going to be filling those housing needs. each neighborhood plan is tasked with a certain land use, residential and commercial mix, and the housing element, the planning department did a great job of setting forth a potential that each one of these neighborhoods have, at least according to zoning in the existing store of unused or underutilized sides. the van ness special use distri

commissioner chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> last year, i'll learn the truth about 9/11 -- i learned the truth about 9/11. this resulted in a loss of respect for president bush and cheney and a loss of motivation for this war, which i took off my bumper stickers, the "god bless our troops" and "we support our troops." the third was respect for 90% of the talk-show hosts. alex jones, i respect. for instance, let me tell you what happened. i listen to christian radio a lot of the times, and one of the christians states in fremont, and i went to dr. craig roberts, i was not able to listen to him and was not able to talk to him, but the manager of capex radio told me he was not going to talk about the facts of the crime scene of 9/11, and he had instructed craig roberts and andy berlin that they were not allowed to talk about the fact of the crime scene. he said he had instructed them not to talk about the facts of the crime scene. that is sad. that shows there is very little real talk radio. the last vestige of freedom is the internet, but you know what? in spite of the

on this particular project. president chiu: supervisor alioto-pier, it appears, made a motion to affirm the issuance of the conditional use with the approval of items 38 and tabling of items 39 and 40. is there a second or a motion? seconded by supervisor elsbernd. any discussion? supervisor. supervisor campos: campos thank you, mr. president. i thank all the members of the public and interested parties who have spoken and to the planning department for their presentation. i think this is a unique appeal and i think in a regular appeal for me, hearing directly from the impacted neighborhood has a great impact and is in many respects it determines the outcome. i think, though, that there is a different analysis that is involved here because we're talking about the impact that this business would have not only in the very small geographic neighborhood area, but i think in the larger vicinity and larger city. and i think that that analysis necessarily requires that we look at what other people outside the neighborhood, outside the specific geographic area that's impacted directly, what they're saying a
